Giant Lemon Sugar Cookies
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min./batch
These cookies spread out and looked more like a pancake or crepe than a cookie. They had a faint lemon flavor even though I put in more lemon zest. They made a complete grease print from all of the butter
I made these cookies tonight. They are very good. They aren't easily rolled into balls though, the dough is too wet. I scooped the dough and placed it in globs on the cookie sheet, then dipped a glass in water and flattened the cookie dough. This worked very well and I ended up with the same result as if they were able to be rolled into balls. I recommend this recipe!
To FLIPPERPIE * In reading your review my heart went out to you on the loss of your Lemon Tea Cookie recipe. I am attaching a link to a Lemon Tea cookie that's been around since the 1950's and has excellent reviews. I hope this is close to what you are looking for https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/lemon-tea-cookies/
Just made this cookie. Could not roll into balls because was very sticky. Instead I refrigerated it for about 20minutes. I used a small cookie scoop and bakes them at 11 minutes. Glad I followed suggestions and added lemon extract. I also used just a dash of vanilla. This cookie is very good but I probably will not make it again. I had a delicious lemon tea cookie that I have made for years and unfortunately lost the recipe. I don’t know how to make it from memory. Have been searching for a long time and will keep searching.
I love these cookies. Do add extra lemon juice to get that lemon flavor.
These were great! I did add lemon extract and make them smaller. I used different colors of coarse sugar for fun. I will be making these again soon!
Delicious lemon cookie! I substituted gluten-free flour for AP flour, as my husband has Celiac, but simply loves sugar cookies. Also made them into smaller cookies since we were taking them to a party. My husband commented they were the best sugar cookies I had ever made. Will keep this recipe and make them again and again!
This cookie was good, but I was disappointed in how it flattened out so much. I have other lemon sugar cookies that I like better. I think I will pass on this recipe next time.
A tasty lemon cookie. Definitely needs the lemon extract. I added it plus added a bit more grated peel as I had more when I grated and my mom and I agreed we would like a bit more zing even with the extract. I made them smaller which was nice. When I make again, I would chill the batter a bit. I found the batter a bit too sticky to roll.
